Where on Google Earth #412

Brian led us to the "horizontal waterfalls" at Kimberley coast in northern Australia. Even his oblique image could not stop me from recognizing the place immediately as I've visited it on GoogleEarth before.

As a happy winner I can present yout WOGE #412 which will lead us away from the Australian continent:



As usual:
Find the location on GoogleEarth and clearly define it's location (lat/long) for example. You will also have to explain the geology the best you can. Your  prize (and duty) will be to host the next WoGE.

  2. Great, the swisseduc-airphoto was the reason to do this WOGE.

  3. At least I was on the right continent. Was busy wandering Alaska. Funny thing, because the first letter of a sentence is of course capitalized, I thought it was a specific glacier named "Piedmont Glacier". So off I go googling for it and find... a LOT of piedmont glaciers!! Learn something new every day. :)

  4. It'll be another day or two before I get WoGE #413 posted as I'm in the middle of exam week. Thanks for being patient...
